Bridges will come off the bench for Thursday's game against the Cavaliers, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
Bridges has scored just 14 combined points over his previous two contests, so the Suns will shift Josh Jackson over to small forward and insert Kelly Oubre at power forward. It's unclear as to whether this is a permanent change, but Oubre has certainly played well enough of late to deserve a shot at the starting lineup.
Bridges compiled nine points (2-8 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 5-8 FT), six rebounds, four assists, and three steals in 35 minutes during Sunday's 117-104 loss to the Kings.
Bridges struggled from the field Sunday, ending with just nine points in 35 minutes. His value comes on the defensive end where he racked up another three steals, his sixth straight game with double-digits in that category. His offense is certainly starting to come around but there are going to be some off-nights. He should be rostered in most formats for his steals and threes, as well as a smattering of points, assists, and rebounds.
Bridges ended with 19 points (5-13 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 37 minutes during Friday's 117-107 loss to the Warriors.
Bridges played a team-high 37 minutes Friday, contributing in multiple categories despite some poor shooting. He has scored at least 16 points in four of his past six games, typically shooting better than this. Across those six games, he has also racked up a combined 28 rebounds, 16 assists, 15 steals, and 17 three-pointers. His minutes are regularly in the mid to high-thirties and his current production warrants a roster spot in most competitive leagues.
Bridges managed 20 points (7-10 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 1-3 FT), four rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 36 minutes during Saturday's 118-112 loss to Atlanta.
Bridges dropped a career-high 20 points Saturday, his third straight game in double-digits. He played at least 35 minutes for the fourth straight game while also contributing three steals and five triples. He is certainly starting to gain traction as a must-roster player in competitive leagues, although a regression is likely coming in one form or another.
Bridges provided 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, four steals, and three assists in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 126-124 loss to the Spurs.
Bridges was superb, delivering an efficient scoring performance while filling up the box score across every category except blocks. He has swiped at least four steals four times this season and has drained three threes in consecutive contests. The rookie is likely to remain heavily involved over the final 29 games of the campaign, though expecting consistency may be a recipe for disappointment.
